Dark Greens...Will they ever be yummy?

I'm one of those that loves to try everything and supremely wants to like everything that I try. I find that there are a few items that I dislike, but every couple of years I'll eat them hoping that my taste buds have changed.

A few things on this list are: Olives, Raw Onions, and Dark Greens like Kale, Mustard Greens, Collard Greens, Broccoli Rabe, and the rest of the gang.

For some reason I have this notion that deep down I really like greens, but every time I try them I'm left with the same result. The main reason that I don't like them is because every time I've ever had them they've been unbearably bitter! Ugh! Is there any way to get rid of the bitterness?
